Following an extensive refurbishment, this historic 19th century public house has today re-opened as the Tulse Hill Hotel. This new venture is housed in a beautiful early Victorian period building that dates back to 1840 when it was originally the Tulse Hill Hotel. The boutique hotel has undergone a comprehensive £1.5 million renovation by The Metropolitan Pub Company. The building has been taken back to its brick core and been returned to its former glory with great care, thought and sympathy towards its heritage and is set to become one of London’s best boutique hotels.
The hotel boasts nine distinctive and beautifully appointed bedrooms as well as a restaurant, private dining room seating up to 14 people, chef’s table which can host up to five guests, a bar and lounge area and landscaped garden with seating area. This historic 19th century public house has been fully restored and developed into a hotel using many period fixtures, fittings and original architectural detail.
The exterior retains much of the architectural detail, maintaining the original signage and copper lanterns, while the interior features design aspects such as wooden parquet flooring, classic black and white tiling, wooden panelling and a reclaimed 1920s bar. The bar offers six rotating ales with a focus on London cask producers and ten draft products, including guest lagers such as Camden Pilsner and Truman’s Pale Ale. Additionally, there is an extensive wine list that focuses on organic and biodynamic wines.
Elsewhere the kitchen boasts an open design, featuring robata grill and rotisserie. Head chef Daniel Stevens (River Cottage, L’atelier des Chefs) menu focuses on seasonal British ingredients and includes dishes such as the LA Grand Central Market burger (inspired by Daniel’s recent travels), sea bass, pork belly and celeriac and lemon tart.
Jemma Kiddle, general manager of the Tulse Hill Hotel, says: “The Tulse Hill Hotel is everything you would want in a local boutique hotel. It offers both locals and guests alike the perfect spot to enjoy an intimate drink at the bar or dinner in the restaurant and in summer, an incredible landscaped garden seating area – not forgetting the nine stunning rooms upstairs. We hope it will offer residents, tourists and local businesses an everyday treat and a destination for special occasions.”
